The Ohio State football team welcomed another into the brotherhood when Kye Stokes became the first spring freshman to lose his black tape. Stokes is the second Buckeye overall to lose black, joining Oklahoma State transfer Tanner McCalister.
Stokes is a four-star recruit from Seffner, Florida. He wasn’t the top-rated prospect at No. 357 nationally according to the 247Sports composite rankings, but it’s clear he’s making a name for himself and proving that ranking isn’t always the last word.
Hear what the young man had to say about removing his black tape. Nothing but love for his scarlet and gray brothers.
“I mean, I just got here ready to work man. I love you all boys with all my heart. Go dollars!”

Stokes has clearly impressed his coaches and teammates. It will be interesting to see where he fits as a true freshman in Jim Knowles’ new defensive scheme.
